The multi award-winning SIXTEEN LEGS project is an exploration of the hidden underground world beneath our feet. Enter a world of mystery and darkness, where some of Australia’s strangest ancient creatures still survive unseen.
This is a home of twisted beauty, haven to a variety of weird inhabitants but hostile to others. Enter a sanctuary full of unusual animals and misshapen rocks, overseen by still-living, giant prehistoric spiders the size of dinner plates.
SIXTEEN LEGS: Enter the Cave Exhibition – A travelling exhibition of caves, cave biology and the exploration and discovery of how this unique environment works. This Exhibition showcases the results of over 25-years of scientific research, 7 years of filming, and hundreds of millions of years of evolution, from the break-up of Gondwana to the present day!
At the heart of the exhibition are 2 giant mating spider replicas with 18 foot leg-spans in the roof of the exhibition area, and a giant egg-sac pulsating with spider young…
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
“Giant Tasmanian Cave Spiders and NEIL GAIMAN!! What more could you possibly want???” – GEORGE R.R. MARTIN (Game of Thrones).
The Exhibition is paired with the SIXTEEN LEGS Documentary, a nature documentary like no other. Featuring Neil Gaiman alongside appearances by Stephen Fry, Tara Moss, Adam Hills, and Mark Gatiss, and with a score co-written and performed by Kate Miller-Heidke.
“Mission accomplished: you’ve changed my mind. I will give spiders a second chance… I like them now. It’s happened!” Teri Campbell, RTR FM 92.1 Perth
Co-Director & Producer, Dr Niall Doran is excited to be bringing SIXTEEN LEGS to Queensland. “Our aim is to provide regional and remote areas with an equal opportunity to experience what we’ve been touring to the capitals.
The love lives of giant prehistoric cave spiders the size of dinner plates that have outlived the dinosaurs, it doesn’t get any sexier than that! For those that aren’t a fan of spiders SIXTEEN LEGS also showcases the jaw-dropping environments in which they live.”
Cr Phil O’Shea from Goondiwindi Regional Council says, “This is sure to be something that the people of Goondiwindi have never seen before. We are extremely excited to have it here at the Civic Centre. Audience Q&A sessions with the filmmakers themselves providing intimate access to the process of film creation and the telling of stories that catch our hearts are sure to be a hit.”
